History: No.22021 was built in 1959, for use at B&S Massey, a large forge in Hyde, Cheshire. It arrived on the island during 1983, but was stored awaiting use in Douglas Locomotive Sheds until 1995, whereupon it was fully overhauled.

It came to the M.E.R during the May 1996  ‘Enthusiasts Weekend’, and was also used for the Groudle Glen centenary celebrations in July, hauling Trailers No. 37 and No.49, and Car No.2/Trailer No.37 for journeys between Laxey and Minorca.

No.22021 arrived on the M.E.R again in November 2009 for assisting the return of items from the Homefield Bus Garage, and departured shortly after. It is now in service as the Port Erin Carriage Shed shunter.
